Co-founder is back as global CEO after a stint at Spotify.
Mark Pytlik is returning to Stink Studios as global CEO.
The co-founder and partner of the global creative studio left in June 2017 after nearly ten years at the company to take a break and explore the world of agencies and brands beyond Stink. After a six-month sabbatical, Pytlik took up a group creative director role with Spotify.
While leading the Artist Marketing and the Creator Marketing workstreams at Spotify, Pytlik oversaw work including an interactive music video, Bandito, for Twenty One Pilots; a series of documentary films for Spotify's emerging artists program ,RISE; and a TVC to promote Cardi B's debut album.
“Stink accounts for a big piece of my heart and my professional career. There’s really nowhere else I’d rather be,” Pytlik said. "During my time away, I met with all sorts of different companies and quickly realized that no one is better placed to capitalise on the seismic changes that are happening across advertising right now. There’s always been a heritage of creative excellence at Stink. My most immediate mandate will be to supercharge our creative and technology offerings with an emphasis on continuing to make world-class work.”
“Mark has a rare mind, seamlessly combining both sides of his brain," added Daniel Bergmann, president and co-founder of Stink. "He is simultaneously a visionary entrepreneur, relentless creative, exact executor and producer. He understands the macrocosm of brands as well as the detail of how to make them shine now and in the future. It is an absolute pleasure to have him back after a break inspiring himself and learning.”
